10 Examples of Beautiful CSS Typography and how they did it… » - Web Design Marketing Podcast & Blog
Lately I have been very interested in how far we can take Typography only using CSS. Sure you can use images or sIFR to produce some very beautiful typography, but there is something unique and special about using only CSS. It is incredibly useful too, if you know the extent you can take CSS you end up with much more flexible websites— especially ones driven by a CMS. Think about how difficult sIFR or images get when you want to replicate that typography or typeface over 100 pages powered by a CMS. If you can get beautiful type via CSS it makes this situation very easy and with out compromise. There are a lot of great sites out there that have beautiful Typography using only CSS, however simply looking at them is only half of the picture. 1.
